Robin Van Persie discusses his conversation with Nicolai Jorgensen ahead of his potential NUFC move

Robin Van Persie has admitted to having a conversation with Nicolai Jorgensen over his potential Newcastle move, refusing to rule out his potential move to NUFC and stating that ‘wants the best for him’ – as well as describing him as a ‘really good player’.

After having bids of £13m and £15m bids rejected for Feyenoord striker, it has been suggested that the reigning Eredivisie champions are holding out for another £5m – meaning Mike Ashley may have to stump up £20m and break our current transfer record if he plans to get him ‘over the line’.

With the deal now tediously dragging on, it has since been suggested that Feyenoord have laid down a deadline for the deal.

We await a potential third bid from NUFC, but fellow Feyenoord striker and former Arsenal and Man United star Robin Van Persie has admitted to having a conversation with the Danish international.

Here’s what he had to say after admitting to discussing his potential move to the Premier League with Newcastle:

“I talked to him about it, but I think it’s nice to keep it between us.

“I want the best for him, I think he is a really good player.

“If he keeps going we enjoy together, that’s fun too.”

We can’t take a great deal from this, however I would think that Van Persie may have said that he’s happy to stay in Holland if that’s what he actually told him. Instead he talks about wanting ‘the best for him’ , praising him as a player and saying at the end that it would be ‘fun’ if he ended up staying.

It means absolutely nothing unless we get a fee accepted by Feyenoord, but I get the feeling from Van Persie’s quotes that Jorgensen is pretty eager to join us.

This response from an NUFC fan (to news of RVP’s comments) perhaps sums up the situation:

    If you say “We can’t take a great deal from this” why bother with the article?

    Just because we can’t take a great deal from it doesn’t mean it’s pointless. Sounds like he’s told RVP he wants the move if you ask me..
